Basic Usage

Exiting the app

The default settings don’t allow the user to exit the app with the back, home and recent apps button. To exit the app you need to use a key combination and a PIN.

On the Nautiz X4 and Nautiz X8 that key combination is F1, F2, F3, F2. On the Nautix X2 you need to use the side keys and press, top-left, top-right, bottom-left, top-right.
When asked for a PIN, use the value you have set up in the settings or 2580 as the default value.
